Game play Pirates Party™ slot

Easy does it! As the reels of Buckshot Wilds by NetEnt spin, the wilds steal the show, delivering memorable thrills to a classic-style online video slot. Upon every new spin, wilds already on the reels move one row down and remain on the gaming grid until they slip off from the bottom row. They may also randomly expand onto neighbouring positions to increase your symbol-matching potential. Furthermore, the gaming grid may also expand, more than doubling the available paylines.

The Bonus Bet option boosts your chances for landing features, and Free Spin scatters. It is a venue worth exploring, as Free Spins come with an increased gaming grid and better chances for extra features and wilds. 


A maximum of three wild symbols may be present on the reels on each spin. Upon every new spin, each wild symbol remains on the reels and moves one row down until disappearing from the gaming grid’s bottom row.

Wilds substitute for all paying symbols except for scatters. When a payline is complemented by a wild, the highest possible winning combination pays out according to the paytable.

Wilds are tied to the original bet, meaning the wilds disappear from the gaming grid upon changing bets. However, they are saved, so when you return to the betting amount, they get restored. (Note: Saved data is subject to expiry.)

If the Expanding Reels Feature is activated, one new wild symbol appears on the reels during that spin.

Expanding Reels Feature

The Expanding Reels Feature may activate randomly at the start of any spin during the main game.
When this feature is active, wild symbols move one row down, and the reels expand downwards by four rows to eight, resulting in a payline increase to 48.
During the spin activating the Expanding Reels Feature, a wild symbol in the top four rows will cause another wild symbol to appear four positions down on the same reel.

Expanding Wilds Feature

When a wild symbol lands on the reels and covers a trigger symbol during the main game or Free Spins, it activates the Expanding Wilds Feature. All symbols surrounding the activated wild symbol (bar other wild symbols) turn into wilds. These wilds vanish when the next spin begins.

Free Spins

Landing 3, 4, or 5 scatters anywhere on the reels, including scatters covered with wilds, activate the bonus round with 6, 10, or 15 free spins, respectively. If the Bonus Bet function is active, you receive 8, 12, or 20 free spins, respectively.

When the Free Spins round starts, the gaming grid expands from four to eight rows until the end of the bonus round, increasing the number of paylines from 20 to 48. One to three wilds randomly appear on the reels during the first free spin. During each following free spin, one new wild symbol randomly appears on the reels.

Scatters may land during free spins, each scatter granting one extra free spin.

Bonus Bet Feature

Click the Bonus Bet special button to add a special twist to the game, accompanied by a neat glinting golden design upgrading the gaming grid. When the Bonus Bet is active for 2.5x of the original wager, at least one new wild symbol will appear on each spin during the main game. 

When the Bonus Bet is active, your chances for the Expanding Reels Feature and Free Spins scatters increase.

When you trigger Free Spins with the active Bonus Bet feature, the number of your Free Spins also increases to 8, 12, and 20 in the case of 3, 4, and 5 scatters.

Buy Feature 

Eager hunters are welcome to trigger the Buy Feature, where you are guaranteed 6 free spins at 100x of the original bet, and surely receive 8 free spins at 125x of the original bet if the Bonus Bet feature is active.

(The Buy Feature triggers Free Spins immediately without a main game spin.)

Theme and Symbols

Embrace adventures of the Wild West’s rugged, hilly terrain as you hunt for the most precious bucks.

The low-paying symbols are the highest-scoring traditional playing card symbols in wooden-plank representations: 10, J, Q, K, and A.

The high-paying symbols are three flamboyant sheriffs, slash buck hunters, and a pair of golden revolvers laid across a golden sheriff star.

The wild is a golden sheriff star emblazoned with a red “WILD” text.

The Free Spin scatter is represented by a clenched lucky fist, holding three brown bags filled with money! Yeehaw!

The trigger symbol is two revolvers waiting for some smoking action against a red backdrop.

The Bonus Bet button is a giant golden circle with a lucky horseshoe in the middle. Once you click it, the wooden gaming grid turns into gold!


You may know the Wild West as the back of your hand, but still, no winning is guaranteed in NetEnt’s Buckshot Wilds, similarly to our video slots. However, the lingering wilds, the potential to expand the gaming grid and the number of paylines, and the Bonus Bet all give you a thrilling experience to play.
You can get on board with NetEnt’s Buckshot Wilds for free, however, if you are after freely roaming big games, you may want to bet a wee coin here or there to test the potential of this medium to high volatility game of 96.04% RTP.
